My Creative Space: Sunburst Canvas

I saw this post a couple of weeks ago and loved the look of the pinwheel painting. I also pinned this and this and this a while back. I love "You are my Sunshine" and decided to combine the pinwheel idea and "you are my sunshine" on a canvas for baby's room....

I faintly drew a dot on the canvas and the lines with pencil and used masking tape to paint the sections in alternate gold and yellow. To tidy the lines up a little once I was done I drew over them with a silver pencil. I also painted the sides of the canvas gold.
It's supposed to look like a sunburst and I think maybe it does :-)
I couldn't decide how to get the text on there. I was going to paint them on there in large lettering but I also wanted to add something to the middle of all the points. So in the end I wrote "You are my Sunshine" on a small scalloped circle and stuck it on with glue dots.

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out and now just need to decide where to put it up in baby's room.
